Valentines Day Makeup

I have not just ONE Valentines Day look, but TWO Valentines Day looks! To make it even better, they’re both based on affordable (i.e. drugstore) brands! Woohoo!

I happen to love pink. Can you tell? I’m a girly girl. So I try to incorporate pink in to every day without being too obnoxious and I think I’ve pulled it off with these two looks.

Valentines Day Makeup: Look 2

This look was a bit more simple but just as pretty! Again, starting with a fresh face, I applied ELF’s Flawless Foundation with my beauty blender sponge (so excited I got this from Glossybox after leaving my 2 extras in CA). I used Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Medium to cover up any pesky spots (this is optional, if you have good skin, skip it!) I used ELF’s Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia.

I used Wet ‘N Wild’s ColorIcon Trio in Sweet As Candy exactly as the instructions say; pink on the lid, brown in the crease and the matte white as a highlight. Super easy.I finished off the eyes with a coat or two of Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara & applied ELF’s Hypershine Lipgloss in Blossom ($1!!!). 5 minutes and I was out the door! The eyes remind me of chocolate covered strawberries… Yum!

Valentines Day Makeup - 5 Product Face

To be honest, we’re planning on staying in this year. I’m pretty excited, I’m making a beef roast with the crockpot & cheesecake! :-) Anyways, with Valentines’ Day being so low-key this year, I’ll probably skip the makeup altogether BUT it was fun to create some looks for you!

Are you planning on trying out either of these looks or creating your own?
